Preventing Raccoons from penetrating Recycling, Compost & Garbage Bins

Raccoons are cute, furry little animals that many of us adore when they show up in a Disney family movie. However, if you are a homeowner in the Lower Mainland of Vancouver, raccoons can be a real nuisance. One way raccoons have of making a big mess of your backyard, is by breaking into garbage bins, recycling bins and compost bins. How is it that raccoons are able to break in to these sturdy plastic containers? Here’s a great video from the Toronto Star, who ran a test to see what attracted raccoons in the first place, and then how they were able to break in when given the opportunity.

If you are looking for a solution to preventing this type of inconvenience in your Burnaby, Coquitlam, Richmond or Vancouver home, then give AAA Wildlife and Pest Control a call. We will be more than happy to give you some helpful solutions.
